Decline of the turkey twizzler

At last, some really good news

The catering company that brought the infamous Turkey Twizzler into Britain’s school kitchens yesterday admitted that Jamie Oliver’s campaign against sub-standard school dinners had taken a healthy bite out of its earnings, wiping £10m off sales in six months.

The celebrity chef’s Channel 4 television series School Dinners has shaken the contact catering industry to the core, leaving steadily retreating revenues and a number of multimillion pound contracts that have failed to attract bidders – despite the promise of more money from the government.
